Although Suicide Squad got very mixed reviews, we can all agree Margot Robbie absolutely killed it as Harley Quinn, right? That seems like the general consensus.
And although the actress has said over and over again how much she loves playing the role, she is now opening up on the struggles she faces taking on such an iconic character.
Margot Robbie loved playing Harley Quinn, but it didn't come without a dark side: Due to stalkers and death threats, she needs to be able to afford a security detail for the rest of her career. https://t.co/y3oMMIntre— E! News (@enews) January 5, 2018
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie explains the "the worst-case scenario of how big and scary [a comic book film] can get."
She goes on to reveal that although she has been in the entertainment industry for years, doing a part this big in the DC Comics universe brought her death threats and stalkers, something she was not at all prepared for.
"There's just all this stuff you learn along the way, like, when you get those death threats, it's [smart] to have a security team do a background check on whoever sent them to see if there is any past history of violence because you'll need to know whether you need security to go to certain events," the 27-year-old said.
"And every time you do a background check, it's going to cost $2,000, so take that into consideration when you're getting yourself into this," she concluded.
On being prepared, Robbie confesses, "I just wish someone had explained a lot of those things to me early on. I wouldn't have resented the position I found myself in because I would've known what I was getting myself into."
We hope she doesn't grow to resent the role from this! We're desperate for more Harley.
